Welcome to Georgetown Village
We are glad you're here!








Georgetown Village (GV), is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization providing services and programs in Georgetown, Burleith, Hillandale, and nearby neighborhoods. GV was established to help our neighbors age in place by providing them with a variety of support services, educational opportunities, cultural and social programming. We provide trained and vetted volunteers and when necessary professional service providers to meet our members’ needs.

Georgetown Village is part of a growing network of similar communities nationwide, including many in the Washington, DC area, in which neighbors are helping neighbors. Our village represents the new face of aging-in-place that allows Village members to live full lives in their own homes with the assistance of  their neighbors. In this way we create a caring, supportive, local community to help seniors remain safely and happily in their own homes.

Come be part of a caring, supportive community.

The Georgetown Village office is located in the Penzance building (formerly Long & Foster), on the lower level of 1680 Wisconsin Avenue NW. The office is staffed by our Executive Director, Lynn Golub-Rofrano, and volunteers, Monday through Thursday, from 10 am - 6 pm. The office is not open on Federal Holidays.  Be sure to call before you stop by in case we are out helping one of our members or enjoying some of our trips or social activities!

Book Discussion: Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa by Peter Godwin
February 19th @ 10:15 am
3315 Q Street NW
With humor, portent and melancholy, Godwin (Rhodesians Never Die) recreates his 1960s youth in white Rhodesia. The son of relatively liberal whites, Godwin, through family servants, gained a sense of black African culture, language and religion.  His mother, a doctor, helped African women with contraception; Godwin, in one of his wistful flash-forwards, observes that after the country became Zimbabwe, the government saw family planning as racist-but women in this still patriarchal society mutinied.
